East Lake - Where Bobby Learned to Play has been endorsed by some of golf's greatest - including Jack Nicklaus and Stewart Cink.
Foreword by Rees Jones
Well written, with beautiful golf-course photo graphy ‚Äî I highly recommend this book.Tom Cousins
What Tom Cousins has done at East Lake has become one of the most transformational projects in the country. Tom‚Äôs ideas are changing other cities and have become a model of community revitalization. This book is a beautiful presentation of the story of how East Lake ‚Äî the home course of my boyhood hero Bob Jones ‚Äî was saved. Now the East Lake Foundation is making sure that this project and its outcome will serve as a role model to influence future generations.¬†Jack Nicklaus
A wonderful journey through the history of venerable East Lake. It made me imagine I was sitting around a fire with Bobby and Alexa, listening to their stories. ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Stewart Cink
Linton C. Hopkins came to East Lake in 1989 and began writing down stories he heard from Tommy Barnes and Charlie Yates. Four years later, when he told Tom Cousins he wanted to publish the stories with some history of the place, Tom said, If you write it, I‚Äôll sell it. That book sold out and this is its sequel.¬†
